SURPRISE!! I Love You!!

"Naruto, Sai, everyone!" Sakura ran to them.

"Hey Sakura chan!" Naruto smiled at him.

"You seem more…jumpy, today," Shikimaru smirked. Sakura grinned.

"Did something good happen?" Sai asked and smiled at her.

"Nothing special…it's just that…me and Sasuke are getting along better than usual!" Sakura blushed.

"Hm…what do you mean by…getting along better? Hm, Sakura??" Ino's eyebrow went up and down at her.

Sakura blushed. "It…it's not like that, Ino!!" she glared at her.

The other girls giggled and snickered.

"Geez…" Sakura huffed.

"So…what do you mean by that, then?" Neji asked.

"Oh…well…yesterday…" Sakura looked down and blushed.

"We kissed…and…and we went on a date up on the Hokage monuments. We held hands and…Sasuke said he'll tell me everything he feels about me, although I'm not too sure what that means," Sakura smiled.

"Oooooh…maybe he's falling in love with you!!" the girls poked her.

Sakura blushed, but then her eyes saddened.

"Maybe not…I know I'll never be in his heart," she murmured.

"Well…you might just don't know the truth, Sakura chan! Maybe…he'll confess to you…don't lose hope, yet! I'm sure Sasuke will fall in love with you soon…I mean…who wouldn't?" Naruto and the guys gathered around her.

Sakura blushed faintly at them and smiled warmly. "Thanks…"

Sasuke sighed and sat down at the dining table.

"I…love her…" he lowered his head.

"I really…really love her a lot…" his fists clenched.

"Don't lose hope in me yet…not yet, Sakura…I'll be sure to confess to you tonight…"

"Ok, bye guys! I gotta go home," Sakura waved at them and went home.

She opened the door slightly and saw Sasuke sleeping on the couch.

Sakura smiled softly and went in.

She sighed and sat down in front of Sasuke on the floor.

"Sasuke…" her thumb traced his lips.

"I love you…" Sakura slowly leaned forward to him.

She closed her eyes and gently pressed her lips on his.

Sasuke's eyes slowly opened slowly and noticed Sakura was kissing him.

He closed his eyes again and let her kiss him.

Sakura kissed him more passionately and stoked his cheek softly.

She broke the kiss and smiled softly at him.

"Even if you don't love me…I'm happy like this, Sasuke…" she whispered.

She gasped when Sasuke's eyes jerked open.

"How can you be so sure, Sakura?" he stared into her emerald eyes.

"W…what?" Sakura blinked at him and blushed faintly.

"I'm just kidding…" Sasuke smirked and sat up.

"Where'd you go?" he asked.

Sakura slowly sat down by him.

"I just went to hang out with Naruto and the others for a while," Sakura murmured.

"Ne…were you…awake this whole time?" Sakura looked down.

"Yea," Sasuke shrugged.

"R…really?! Then…then you…" Sakura blushed and touched her lips.

"You kissed me," Sasuke smirked at her.

Sakura turned red and lowered her head.

"It doesn't matter, does it? That's already our 4th kiss," Sasuke murmured.

Sakura looked away shyly. "Y…you remember…all that?" she asked quietly.

"Want to make our fifth?" Sasuke lifted up her chin and pulled her towards him.

Sakura blushed. "S…Sasuke…you're acting weird," she slowly pushed him away.

Sasuke pulled her back and kissed her.

Sakura's eyes widened.

Sasuke broke the kiss and gazed into her eyes.

"I know…and I'll tell you everything tonight, Sakura…" he whispered.

"What do you mean?" Sakura looked at him curiously.

"You'll see…" Sasuke murmured and kissed her again.

Sasuke knocked on the door.

"What-OH, Sasuke! What's up?" Naruto grinned.

"Dobe…I need you…and the whole village, even the Hokage…to do me a favor…" Sasuke murmured.

"Hm? What is it?" Naruto blinked.

Sasuke stepped in and whispered something into his ear.

Naruto made a big grin and nodded. He laughed.

"I knew it! You DO love her!" Naruto exclaimed happily.

Sasuke looked away. "I…didn't notice it at first…then…I started to realize my actions and why I'm always acting so protective of her…and then it just came to me. You were right…I…I just loved her too much to realize it," Sasuke sighed.

"It's good to know that you've finally figured out your feelings, Sasuke…alright, I'll do what you say. In two hours, I'll be able to get everyone…the whole village will be there waiting, alright?" Naruto smiled.

"Yea….thanks, Naruto," Sasuke nodded and smirked at him.

"Tsunande Baachan!" Naruto exclaimed and burst in.

"What is it, Naruto…?" Tsunande sighed.

"Um…well…it's really not something that I want…but something that Sasuke wants," Naruto grinned.

"The Uchiha? Asking a favor? Of me, the Hokage?" Tsunande chuckled. "That's a new thing here," she smiled and leaned forward.

"So? What is it he needs?" she raised an eyebrow.

Naruto leaned forward also and whispered something in her ear.

Tsunande's eyes widened.

"WHAT?!" she exclaimed.

Naruto sweat dropped.

"Aw…please?? Isn't it a good thing?!" he made puppy eyes.

Tsunande sighed and shook her head.

"This is…really, really interesting…Sasuke Uchiha…confessing to Sakura? And he expects me to gather everyone in the village to that exact spot where he abandoned her on the bench?!" Tsunande glared at Naruto.

"Um…yes?" Naruto grinned.

"I don't know…." Tsunande shook her head.

"Please?? Tsunande baachan…this might be the only chance that Sakura chan and the whole village will be able to hear those three words…and you know that'll make Sakura chan happy!" Naruto exclaimed.

Tsunande tapped her finger.

"Hm…well…that's true, it WILL make Sakura happy…but are you sure?" she raised an eyebrow.

"Yep!" Naruto nodded.

Tsunande hesitated, thought for a while, and stayed quiet.

After a few moments, she smiled.

"Ok…gather everyone up! Tell them to hide in the trees, bushes, in the forest…and pop out one by one when Sasuke confesses, ok?" Naruto grinned and nodded again.

Sasuke sighed and opened the door quietly.

He saw Sakura sleeping on the couch and smiled softly at her.

He closed the door and walked to her.

Sasuke kneeled down and stared at her face.

He studied it carefully.

'I never saw it….she's…actually really, really beautiful…her shining, emerald eyes…her peach-like skin….her rosy cheeks and that radiant smile…her soft and flowing pink hair…her body curves…' Sasuke's eyes examined her lips. 'Her lips…like the cherry blossom color…pink and a dash of red…and full and plump…really beautiful,' Sasuke ran his thumb over her forehead, nose, cheek, and then her lips.

He slowly leaned forward and pressed his lips against hers.

Sakura stirred a bit.

Sasuke broke the kiss and continued staring at her.

"I love you…" he whispered.

Sakura slowly opened her eyes.

She gasped when she saw two pairs of black orbs looking at her.

"S…Sasuke?!" she sat up immediately.

"Sorry…did I scare you?" Sasuke smirked at her.

"Yea…a little…hehe," Sakura smiled.

Sasuke sighed and sat beside her.

"Hey…in 2 hours…can you come and meet me at that place?" he murmured.

"Eh? Why? What place?" Sakura blinked.

"…it's a surprise…and…the place where I left you…" Sasuke looked away.

Sakura stared at the ground.

"Um…sure…" she muttered.

"I'll…be there waiting…in 2 hours, come," Sasuke stood up and went out the door.

Sakura sat there quietly.

"A…surprise?" she narrowed her eyes. "What could it be??"

Sasuke put his hands in his pocket.

"I wonder if Naruto is already there," he smirked.

He reached the place and looked around.

"You know…Naruto, you should tell them to hide their chakra…or else Sakura will know you are all here," Sasuke shook his head.

Naruto came out of the bushes and grinned.

"Hehe…yea, I guess I forgot," he scratched his head cheekily.

"Anyways…everyone's here, right?" Sasuke looked around and saw the villagers pop out.

'Wow...I didn't expect that much people in our village...they probably covered the whole forest...' Sasuke sweat dropped.

"Yep!" Naruto nodded.

Tsunande came out and walked towards Sasuke.

She glared at him.

"You're serious?" she raised an eyebrow.

Sasuke looked at her steadily.

"I'm serious…after my confession tonight…" Sasuke glared back.

"I swear…to never hurt her again. I'll protect her with my life. I will care for her and be with her…and I vow…to always stay faithful and loyal to her," he replied sternly.

Tsunande sighed.

"You better keep your word, Uchiha," she murmured.

"I will," Sasuke nodded.

Tsunande and Naruto looked at each other and smiled.

"Well…we're all glad," Naruto crossed his arms.

"Sakura Chan…can finally be happy…" the villagers all smiled at that statement.

"She…can really…finally be happy," Tsunande's eyes softened and smiled.

Sakura stared at herself in the mirror.

"I'm so curious!" she exclaimed.

"What surprise?! What the hell is it?" Sakura sighed.

She looked at the time and gasped.

"Oh, shit! I only have fifteen minutes!!" she dashed out the door.

Sakura walked slowly.

She saw the bench and her eyes saddened.

'The same bench…where he left me…where he abandoned me…to leave the village…' Sakura sighed quietly and sat down.

"Where is he? Didn't he say that he's waiting for me here?" Sakura looked around.

Sasuke saw Sakura looking sadly at the bench and then sitting down.

He took a deep breath.

'This is it…' he thought and slowly came out of the trees.

Sakura jumped when Sasuke appeared right in front of her.

"S…Sasuke! You scared me!" she stood up and sighed.

"Sorry," Sasuke smirked.

"So…why did you tell me to come here? What's the surprise?" Sakura blinked.

Sasuke looked down.

"Um…" he paused when a firework shot up.

Sakura's eyes widened in surprise.

"I want to start this off…by saying that I always want you by my side, Sakura," Sasuke continued.

Sakura stood there quietly.

She gasped when she saw the villagers, one by one, come out of the bushes and trees around them.

"You're the most important person in my life…I promise, to protect you, care for you, be loyal to you, be faithful to you, be honest to you…" Sasuke took her hands in his.

Sakura was about to cry.

She stood there, listening to every word he said.

"…I vow…to never hurt you again. I'll be the best husband in the world. I'll make you the most luckiest and happiest wife ever…" Sasuke smiled softly at her.

The villagers continued popping out of the bushes and trees.

The fireworks continued sparkling and bursting in the sky.

"You're Konoha's most precious treasure….and to me…you're my most precious treasure. That night when I left the village…and said thank you…" Sasuke paused and stared at Sakura.

"…it meant…thank you…for loving me…for caring about me when no one else did…for always trying to help me, for always being by my side no matter what I did to you…for always worrying about me…for everything," Sasuke murmured. "Sakura…you're my everything…you're my world, and without you, I'd be nothing…" he sighed.

"I know…that I'm the kind of person who isn't good with words…but…right now…no matter how hard it is for me to say it. I want to tell you how I feel about you…" Sasuke reached for something in his pocket.

It was a diamond box.

Sakura's eyes widened.

Sasuke slowly opened it.

Inside the box, was a gold ring.

Sakura nearly fainted when she read the words imprinted in silver on the ring.

It said, "I love you".

Sakura's tears slowly fell from her eyes to the ground.

Sasuke took the ring.

He reached for Sakura's hand and gently slid the ring on her finger.

"Sakura…" Sasuke looked at her and smiled.

At that time, Naruto and the others came out behind Sasuke and smiled at Sakura.

"I love you," Sasuke replied firmly.

Exactly at the time he said that…a burst of fireworks went up the sky and formed the words, "I love you".

Sakura's eyes widened.

"Sakura Chan…I told you," Naruto grinned.

Sakura smiled brightly.

Tears fell happily from her eyes.

"Sasuke…" Sakura hugged him tightly.

Sasuke smiled softly.

The villagers all clapped and cheered.

Tsunande sighed. 'I should let them be…it feels…like Sasuke really means it,' she smirked and smiled at them.

"This was the surprise I was talking about, Sakura…" Sasuke whispered.

Sakura sniffed and nodded.

"I know…" she smiled softly at him.

"I love you," Sasuke replied and kissed her passionately.

Everyone gaped at them.

"Oh…my…GOD!!" Naruto exclaimed and fainted.
